This book is so different from anything I've ever read before and I was captivated the whole way through. I've read Kate's other books and I loved them, so I had high expectations for this one and she most certainly didn't disappoint.
Every aspect of this book was incredible. From the emotion (and boy there was emotion), the scenery, the relatable characters, the twists and turns, and the storyline that kept me reading till late into the night, this story had it all.
This is the book I recommend to everyone.
"Even without seeing her face, I know that the woman standing at the waters edge is desperately sad."
The first third of the book is the love story of Emerson and Mereki, a first time emotional and gripping love story. I love these types of stories so much, if the author can do a good job of capturing what it’s like to fall in love the first time, these books can rank up there at the very top of my favorites list.
Emerson comes from a broken home, with an evil mother and a horrible step brother. When Mereki becomes a first hand witness to this he decides that Emerson needs a friend more than the bullies do and they quickly settle into a routine together. Ki fishes and Emerson works on her art. The back and fourth between the two characters is beautiful and subtle but you can see the love blossoming in every exchange they have: They never had a chance, it’s heartbreaking and wonderful.
"As long as we're together, I'll smile forever"
They hold off the love feelings for each other until their senior year in high school, seventeen years old, when they just can’t fight it anymore. A first kiss down by the river in their special spot together and she is lost to him forever.
Emerson wants to be an artist and Ki an architect, they want to get out of this one horse town, away from all the people that do nothing but drag them down. Emerson is already so talented, for her birthday Ki gets her a table at the art festival so she can try and sell some of her drawings, and she does! But later that night a terrible event happens changing the course of everything and everyone’s lives forever. I know it sound’s corny but I'm telling you.
Skip forward about four and a half years or so, things aren’t so great for Emerson and Ki. High tensions at home are leaving her drained and feeling incredibly distant from her partner, and now there is a super nice super hottie that wants to take her to coffee.
It took awhile for me to warm up to Josh, the character that falls in love with Emerson later in the novel. By the end though your not really sure who you are rooting for, you love all of them so much. For those wondering I’m going to call this a quasi love triangle and leave it at that. Give it a try even if you hate them, this story is so lovely and compelling.
At times I was reading with a lump in my throat, by the end I was reading through tears. The characters were so well written and they definitely made you feel all the feels. There were a few sexy parts: they were steamy but not overdone. I was not expecting the ending, when we came to the reveal I had to read it twice to make sure I hadn’t missed anything.
One thing that drives me crazy in books is when authors over do it one describing the characters, what they look like and what they are wearing. These things in no way connect me with them at all. This book was excellent in leaving those things out of the narration, and I loved it! The only way that I knew there were racial tensions going on with the couple in the beginning was because of the scenes with the bullies. This is just something that really stood out to me while reading. And last, my favorite quote from the book was definitely this truth:
"For a minute or a lifetime, some people try to clip your wings, whole others help you learn to fly."
Also, their Aussies. So, Yeah. Hotties, Mate.
Maybe it's because I'm an artist that I loved these characters so much but I know I would have connected with them regardless of their creative interests. They were well-developed and the storyline was never slow. It was a perfect pace in my opinion. The sexual tension was real and not rushed and the personalities of the main characters stayed linear throughout the whole timeline of the book. I REALLY, REALLY enjoyed this very new storyline...nothing "packaged" in this love story...it was refreshing and unlike anything I've read.
Emerson's journey was truly about introspection, about loving herself and finding her way back. To her loves and the things she was passionate about.
I can't and won't say too much about this story cause it will ruin your experience.
Kate Sterritt blew me away with her impeccable prose and storytelling. I instantly connected with Emerson and almost felt that I lived vicariously through her. The story flashbacked to Emerson's childhood and it worked perfectly. My connection to her and her journey only intensified.
Love My Way was definitely a surprise. A wonderful and angsty one but I loved every moment, minute and word of it. A must read.
I liked the characters for the most part but often felt scenes were a bit over the top and a reactions a bit extreme. Josh, however, was wonderful and at times I wondered if Emerson was worthy of his love. She truly struggled with her decisions and the demons in her soul so I was glad she had him to help her heal.
Ki was a true highlight in this book and his part in one of the final scenes tore me up inside. His role in Emerson's life is one that made me smile, giving her the strength to make her life her own. Together with a very tender epilogue, that saved the book for me.
